Appreciating Ronaldo's deed, mixed martial arts (MMA) star Khabib Nurmagomedov, who also recently met Ali on a trip to Kazakhstan, hailed the former Manchester United star as a "legend" on the social media.

Besides Ronaldo, Ali has met other football stars like Lionel Messi, Diego Maradona and Andriy Shevchenko.
